Spending time playing! It’s relaxing, fun and yet a challenge!
Nice little game
by Disneymom57 on 2020/10/28 14:18
This is a game I play to relax myself. There’s no time limit so I can start a game and finish it later on. No stress. I have to use strategy to win.

I literally play it for hours. Just wish there were a feature that lets you know when you’ve run out of moves.
Fun for hours!!!!

I have played solitaire for years, for all you young people that means with cards. Then a hand-held toy game, but now on my phone and computers!! I am getting close to 1,000,000 wins. Yay me

Some daily challenges seem unwinable
by Native Graffiti on 2020/10/26 13:48
I do like the new daily challenges and the upgrades. However, when I’m given a medium or hard daily challenge, I just wish there was a way I could change that option if I get frustrated and can’t solve after several attempts. I’d really like to have a choice or a reset if I’ve played the same game. To be fair, I’ve done all the challenges but only one has me stumped, a “medium” challenge. Honestly I’ve tried everything! Grrrrr please give me a reset button for those days when it just seems impossible!
Fun free relaxing

This is a really fun quick paced game. Can’t believe it is free with ads that are interesting. Thank you.
Disappointed
by AnnaBean15 on 2020/10/26 02:11
I love Solitaire. I always have. However, this game does not save my achievements. It will tell me I earned them, but never keep them. It’s very strange and frustrating. I love this version of the game. I would love to see this fixed! Thanks!

Automatically copies anything from your paste buffer when you start the game
by OSide-JAM on 2020/10/23 18:28
I liked this app but now with iOS 14 I see that it’s automatically “pasting” whatever I last copied from other apps. There is seriously no legitimate purpose for it to be doing this. Deleting app now.
Excellent

This game is fun and there is no restriction on how many times one can play. It is always available and it’s free. I find it can be very relaxing. 😀 Living alone and during COVID, Solitaire helps to relax me.
Used to be fun
by Nobody20100531 on 2020/10/23 02:38
But last few times they “improved” it they added many useless features. When you finish a game, you have to click through about 20 clicks and wait a minute while dozens of useless notifications flash by.
Mostly advertisements

Every time an ad with location pops up it goes to driving maps and locks up. Irritating! I have to turn my phone off and on to get out of the frozen screen

Sick of the ads...
by ncgood150 on 2020/10/16 15:30
I understand that “free” games require a certain amount of ads to operate and retain their free status, however this has gotten out of hand. I feel that recently the game has been dealing nothing but impossible hands. 30 seconds of play time and I am stuck with ANOTHER ad. I’m literally watching more ads than I am actually playing the game. Looks like I’ll just end up deleting this app and playing solitaire on my computer without all the annoying ads. There must be some sort of way to compromise? Maybe an ad every 3-4 hands would be acceptable? This is entirely taking the enjoyment out of this app.
This game is not good.
by Cutipuppi on 2020/10/16 13:31
Every time I get a new game it ends up in an unsolvable way. I even tried going back and trying everything. The only one that I was able to complete was the first one. Also there are no choices of easy or hard it just gives you a deck of cards.
Frustrating and expensive
by lbkl2 on 2020/10/16 11:06
I have played a number of games on the Brainum software and cannot win. To make sure it wasn’t just me, I downloaded other solitaire programs and had a more balanced result by winning some and loosing some. This is an expensive game, over $11.00. Obviously the software has a problem.

Nearly impossible
by Oldnweathered on 2020/10/14 12:34
For a game that is relatively simple this one is nearly impossible to win. My win/lose ratio is sitting at 10/76. The shuffling has to be biased to some degree to be this difficult. The layout is ok except for the hints that are pretty much useless.
Still a touch screen play issue but, still great!
by FedUpWithTech! on 2020/10/14 06:40
First of all, this is the Best solitaire game app on the market, bar none! But, my one complaint that gets totally in the way, an actual physical obstacle is how I am using a quick touch to send cards onto other corresponding cards that is a great automatic feature allowing for some seriously fast timed play! But, that is also the issue where I am on an older iPhone to my newest iPhone and both touchscreen play responses frequently causes the card to lift but not send or transfer that card to the other as needed to continue on to the next split-second card to play; I am constantly having to return to the previously unsuccessful card not autoplaying on-demand as needed and frustratingly needing to tap several times to finally get it to pass over to the next card??!! I still give this game a fifth star just for the game’s great graphics and is the beat on the market!
15-second ads that crash IOS 14
by Tmbos on 2020/10/13 01:37

Ever more intrusive ads, poor shuffle
by Jstavros on 2020/10/12 08:11
It seems in the recent version the ads beating us over the head (unless you pay $12) have increased in frequency and hang around longer before you can dispatch them. That, and the poor shuffles have made this one sadly too annoying to play.

by Unbracedhalo on 2020/10/11 01:26
Update: don’t bother. It goes from a fun game to a Joke of a game...simply gets harder and harder before you realize you’re only here to watch ads for other games. Original review: Okay, yes, I have a horrible attention span; this version is a tad easier than almost every other Solitaire game I’ve played (the worst being Google’s on-line version (too hard)). Give it a try...you’ll win more than you lose, and there is a nice hint button when you just want to chill and not lose.

Drains battery
by Beauty4you! on 2020/10/04 14:40
The game was fine, it doesn’t auto end when you are out of moves though. That’s part is annoying. Also, for whoever reason it drained my battery consistently. My IPhone XS Max battery would last all day before I installed this, and when I removed it. But with this installed, I got hours out of my battery. This is something that needs addresses.
A bad experience!
by stephen1588 on 2020/10/03 21:09
Ads spreading Trump nonsense, from god knows what source, degrading our democracy, spreading cynicism, disrespecting science, and showing no regard for the truth... these are offensive to me. I’m going to delete any app that shows them. I did not enjoy the experience.

Everything you want nothing you don't want
by Dkac on 2019/12/27 05:25
Great game. I love that it's like a deck of cards. It's not made so you win or lose. It's just random. you can go back if you make a mistake or even get help. It's your choice. Yes, they have ads to pay the bills and possibly make money. The ads are seldom intrusive, very seldom do they cause a problem. When that happens it's a one-time thing. Overall incredible game. Thank you very much for a game that simulates real cards. I tried several before I found this game. Update: after the recent upgrade at first glance I was disappointed because cards looked out of preoperative. This was because of my bad eyesight, I had the setting in the game options wrong for the new update. One I changed the setting, everything is great. The graphics in the new update are wonderfully sharp and crisp. Unlike lots of games where the update changes the game mechanics. As far as I can tell they left what worked alone, and instead took advantage of the powerful new chips to make the game look and feel even more like a deck of cards. The great thing is that the app does not get in the way of the experience instead just like a true deck of cards it is just a means to an end.
What did you do!
by mocharlie on 2019/12/22 23:26
My app freezes and I get black screen and need to turn it off to continue playing. Your upgrade is horrendous!! Thank your for your response. I still have problems, not as frequently but still there. When I win or cannot and try to start a new game the ad attempts to load and then I get a black screen with a tiny symbol in the lower left corner. At that point I could wait and wait but nothing will change and need to close and shut the app down before I can continue to play. I hope this helps more than my first “rant”. RJ Update #2, I realized this morning that several of my apps are having issues “opening “ and that this started after my last Apple update of 13.3 something. I will also contact and rant at them. This morning absolutely no ads have shown on my Solitaire app?? Thank you for your interest in my issue. Ramona Many apologies and Mea Culpa....it turns out that my last Apple update corrupted as it downloaded and caused all the issues. I worked through Apple support and updated through my PC and now all is working beautifully. Please accept my profound apologies, I love your Solitaire program. Ramona
Best solitaire game I've ever played
by Frankinchobee on 2018/04/24 03:58
I've played a lot of solitaire games over the years. Most of them were decent games and some were just terrible. What really sets this particular game above the rest is it's simplicity of design and how close it gets to a real life experience. No two games are the same and it's really impressive how the developers have been able to design the game in such a way that it feels like I'm playing with a real deck of cards that are being shuffled and dealt in a truly random way. The best compliment I can pay to the developers is to let them know that they've created a game that has been a really great way kill some time and immerse myself in the experience that helps to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Kudos to the developers and publishers. Thanks for creating a great game that I would have been more than happy to pay for but have been able to enjoy it for no money at all. If you enjoy solitaire, I can recommend this game without reservation. Give it a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Really cool!
by foxeyr1227 on 2019/11/07 14:30
I have just brought this game yesterday, and I got to tell you, I was really addicted to it! My three personal favorite about the game is that I can change the theme on the card and in the background. With that I made a beautiful mountain in the background. I also put a picture of my dog on the back of the card! My second personal favorite is that it’s so satisfying to see the cards gently fold back to the card pile when game is over. It’s like seeing $100 of money deposit into your bank account! My third personal favorite is that when I play the game, I just randomly tap everywhere and when I see the cards going crazy after tapping everywhere, I’m like “what the crap?” It’s so funny! (Not a bug) also at the end of the game, I notice that even after I finish the game I will see a whooping 200$ as my score! It’s like getting money in real life! I find that satisfying! Keep up the good work!
Best solitaire
by Trish7491 on 2019/11/19 20:03
This is my favorite of the solitaire games. You can select a background from your photos, the card face design is a crisp mix of traditional and modern, the card back selections are nice. The ads are quick and do not appear on the playing screen, only between games. The control panel is not visible unless you tap it; I like a clean screen. My only complaint is that the shuffles are not random. Perhaps this is to make it possible for the player to win more games. The result is a preponderance of deals that result in, for example, all red cards or mostly red cards, or three of the same card, three aces that turn up early in the game —these patterns and others repeat often. It would be fun to have an “IS THIS GAME WINNABLE” feature, so that when you lose you can then check to see if it’s winnable and try again.
Decent version of Solitaire
by C€J£H& on 2018/12/23 06:06
I recently switch from a Windows 10 phone to an Apple iPhone. I tried to find a version of this game similar to what I had on that phone. Game play on this version of Solitaire is good. Two areas of one improvement would be make the “undo” button immediately available (currently on a pull up menu), and find a different way to display the adds. Not having the undo button on the main screen adds several seconds to the time it takes to successfully solve the hand. On the version I played on my old phone I regularly got below two minutes to solve the hand, but the best I can do with this version is 2 minutes 20 seconds. Being forced to watch a 5 second add after (on average) every other deal is rather off-putting. Perhaps that is the Apple phone App way, but I still might look for a different version of this game on the iPhone because of it. Otherwise, good game.
Use to be a good game
by Tommore2003 on 2018/01/09 16:33
Rarely write a poor review but this apps advertisements between each game have gotten excessive and obnoxious. After most games the commercial ad is loud and long. Sometimes it requires multiple clicks to bypass the ad and get back to the game. Bummer this app has gotten so ad focused as it really has diminished the experience. Update - was trying to include screen shots. Still loud ads running for 5+ seconds. Most have ability to mute but not all can be muted. Unpleasant experience to have noisy ads. Some ads do require multiple clicks, one to mute, second click after five seconds to close screen, then another ad for same game comes up. Three clicks to remove ad. This all changed from previous experience which had almost all silent ads. More pleasant experience.
What....
by Squid Qu33n on 2019/07/24 16:34
I’m very disappointed because I am not able to move anything but a king to an open space. I have been playing this game for three months and I have had to restart the game because it seemed impossible to win. I love the design of this game very much. It’s just that one little thing that annoys me a lot. When I clearly can’t do anything because I can’t move anything but a king to an open space, I ask for a hint. When I have a queen and another queen with a jack, the hint directs me to move the jack to the other queen. And then I tap the hint again because of course, I can’t do ANYTHING because I can’t move anything but a king to an open space. The hint tells me to then move that jack to the queen it was just on.... I’m not sure if it’s not the real rules for you to only move the king to an open space, but that’s not how I play. I think this game is very amazing though. A lot of thought was put into this solitaire game.
Throttled win rate.
by Uglybuster on 2018/01/06 02:48
Two things that are maddeningly wrong about this game. One is if you are on airplane mode so that the adds can’t run the win rate drops to zero. And worse. It doesn’t even let you “feel” like you’re winning. You’re lucky to get four or five flips. The second you turn off airplane mode the win rate shoots up in a ridiculously obvious way. You’ll be able to get tons of flips even if you don’t win every hand. Problem two is the annoying adds. Even with the airline mode off the win rate is lower than it should be and you’ll have to hit “new game” a lot. Then a video starts and shuts off your music so it can run a stupid clip. If you’re renewing your games a lot trying to get even just one win you’ll get 4 or 5 interruptions in the middle of a good song. So frustrating!
Enjoyable, but also annoying
by LLM221 on 2018/01/07 17:48
What other reviewers have said is true -- the cards are not as random as if you were playing with a real deck. The game seems to go in cycles of winning for a stretch and then not being able to win for a (long?) stretch. That said, I'm mostly using it for mindless passing of time, so I just keep going. I don't even mind the ads, as long as I can just X them away. The ads that have timers, lasting 5 seconds or more, or multiple pages are a different matter. And, just recently, ads with sound have been popping up, and, if one isn't paying attention in order to silence them quickly, they are very noisy! I have no desire to draw attention to myself in a public place or on an airplane, or to interrupt someone nearby who is reading, watching tv or on the phone. (I realize I could mute my device, but I shouldn't have to.) If these ads continue, I probably will delete this app.
Random algorithms? Riiight!
by aspanky7 on 2017/05/30 21:08
This is a very addictive and fun game as are almost every other solitaire app out there. The most annoying thing about this version is the supposed "random" algorithm that chooses the cards. These are about as random as a dirty casino slot machine. You will never be able to get above a 20% win rate because of the cards that are "chosen" to start the game. I have played well over a thousand games and at LEAST half of those games started with either ALL red or black cards, all low number cards, or ,the most infuriating of all, every single card in a suit. Entirely too many time this game deals out all 4 cards in a suit and even more often 3 cards from one and 3 cards from another. I've played solitaire since I was a child and NO other computerized solitaire game (NOR when I've played with actual cards shuffled and dealt by myself) has been this maddening and impossible to win. Yes it IS fun but it is also absolute crap and absolutely NOT random!
Solitaire
by Lvpzls on 2020/01/23 06:57
Have played for good while with no ads then recently the game froze. I couldn’t move the cards. I deleted and reinstalled and now I am told I have to pay to get the no ads feature again. I wrote and told them of my problem. Got an email saying they would be in touch. Have heard nothing. Days later: Did get email from Brainium. Was not able to download the no ads version as instructed I could do. Was in the cloud so should have been available. The download showed a circle that never ended circling around. So I decided to reboot my phone and after the reboot I was able to download the no ad version in my cloud. I am so happy to have finally gotten my solitaire back!!!!! Thank you for your help. PS. I have changed my rating.
Racist ads
by Domzyglo on 2019/10/20 02:29
I’ve been playing this game with very issues for a yrs. today I see the most racist ad I’ve ever seen in my existence! This game has an ad after each played game but this one was sick. It was a picture of a black emoji with white stuff around his mouth. The writing on the ad “said i got black! What you got?” I really want to assume that this company was unaware of the ads they allow, but this one was too much. I normally don’t say anything but this is outrageous. Monitor your ads!!! No one should be subjected to racism this blatantly near 2020. Unfortunately, too many still thinks this is funny! The name of the game was Trivia Crack & when you look them up on the App Store, their icon is full of childlike characters like bouncing bananas & apples, etc. OUTRAGEOUS! I’ve already placed this same review on their site as well. One of you have to stop condoning this behavior & conditioning another generation to believe in racist stereotypes...racism period. Let there be a generation of loving one another for once in this human history!
It serves the purpose.
by outspoken igwt on 2019/07/07 01:43
I have played this game for several years. It makes me sleepy, which is what I need just before I go to bed. It’s a simple game. Like most most card games it helps to remember the cards played. I actually prefer shuffling the deck. I am highly suspicious the deck here is contrived by the developer so I get the feeling of not only playing the cards dealt but also playing against the developer. While a shuffled deck can give such displays as all reds or all blacks I get tired getting to the end point and repeatedly have two card remaining, needing say a red nine to complete ty run and a black nine come up. And, all to often it’s a nine being used to foil the run. The are other quirks in this deck arrangement, several. Then there is the scoring. It makes no apparent logic as to the score given for the achievement of a run, and I do not see an explanation how a score is determined.

Hi!! I really love solitaire and I’m so happy I can also play it on my phone when I don’t know where my cards are! My mom won’t play a game with me, my brother doesn’t really know how to play, and my dad is always playing another game. Although, one thing is, sometimes the games seem impossible even with hints. Some even ARE impossible. But I love how you can customize the background and the back of the cards. You could make it so that you can do two player games with one person on one device and the other on another and they compete to see who can win the fastest. Although you might have to add a “this is impossible” button... sorry I made this so long I just have a lot to say and I’m pretty bored 😅😅
One fault
by reallytrulyfree on 2018/06/19 13:16
I love your games. I look for your games. One problem I have found is minute but makes me crazy. The drop up menu when playing solitaire to go back a step or start a new game is on the bottom of my screen which is where all of my frequently used apps are and nearly every time I want your drop up menu I get my frequently used app drop up. It particularly seems to happen when I am close to winning a game I think and I see a card that the game did not pick up and place on the correct spot and I try to go back to get it. Just a pet peeve of mine. Doesn’t mean I will stop playing because you have the best games by far.
Random?
by Rpee47 on 2019/08/23 23:17
UPDATE: The developer sent me a very thoughtful response to my skeptical evaluation and I was able to review the mathematical basis and coding principles for the random generators and shuffling algorithms. As a result of reading through that information, I think I can say that my skepticism does not hold up to scrutiny. I also want to thank the developer for taking the time to provide useful supportive information. To me, that was extremely thoughtful. ORIGINAL: I would love to see Branium’s randomization routine. I think the table is heavily tilted towards putting more ads in front of you. All the mechanics of the game are fine - it’s user friendly enough, the options to customize settings are adequate, and the speed of cards appearing or shuffling off the field of play is fine. The ads take a while to appear, the time to “x” out seems like an eternity, they apparently don’t have a lot of companies buying ad space, so ads are repeated ad naseum, and finally, again, I think the deck is stacked to increase potential for more ads to be thrown at you. I would go into why I don’t think the shuffles are truly random, but I’ve already spent way too many minutes writing about a very small pastime. Don’t settle for one, try a few and find one you will like more than I liked this one.
Best graphics I think
by Jgcool01 on 2017/03/28 19:40
I would like to see the undo button on the screen all the time or have the option to have it there instead of having to pull up the menu. Like most games now it is crammed full of ads which just get in the way and make it unenjoyable. I decided to delete the game from my iPhone because of this. I think these guys have the best graphics and sound though. I think the apps are affordable. With solitaire I would like to option to stack the columns one way or the other. FreeCell gives you an option of switching the top around to where you want things and I like solitaire to do the same. With FreeCell I have a good one ratio, but with the regular solitaire the win ratio is very poor. I don't believe in making difficulty levels, just have it be random and you win what you win. With the redo button how can you lose.
Good game, annoying ads
by Kat634 on 2019/04/08 22:03
Why don’t you thank us by getting rid of the horrible ads? The game itself is fine, but the tacky ads are really, really, really annoying. Unless you enjoy being irritated, you have to turn off wifi, or turn off Solitaire's cellular access, to avoid the ads. The ads are for crap that no one would want. Just to be extra annoying, occasionally an ad runs for quite a while before offering you an option to dismiss it, and in one instance, tapping the barely visible x did nothing whatsoever. The ad, which was for some dumb shoot-at-stuff game, was stuck. Closing and reopening Solitaire did nothing. The only way to get rid of the ad was to reboot the iPad. This is not acceptable. Whatever is spawning these ads needs to be sucked into a black hole.
A Great Solitaire Version
by Mick's Game on 2017/09/19 16:26
Still enjoy this version of Solitaire. But for the past few weeks, the advertisement for Find the Clues game has fatal flaw; when pressing X, the app closes. I have used this app for a couple of years and found it to be a great version of the basic solitaire. I use the app daily just for relaxation. But I also pay attention to the stats being kept (about 40% wins) as well as the achievements which just gives me smiles, like 'Night Owl'. The ads that are shown don't interrupt my game, but appear between games and are easily dismissed. In addition, I also use FreeCell from the same maker which is another good solitaire game.
Too many ads, and freezes too much
by Jhart79 on 2018/02/10 16:37
The game has gotten worse with each update, and there are way too many ads. Game freezes up quite a bit, and it doesn’t respond properly. Also the fact that if you have to undo a move it will automatically add time to your already existing time to cause you to go over is really not a very desirable feature. Almost like the creator of this game does not want a player to even be able to beat already set high scoring time, no matter what you do or how quickly you can get through a set. As soon as I find a suitable replacement game, I will be deleting this one.
Brainium games
by another Proud Vet on 2018/11/04 02:28
I have found the Brainium games to be an excellent way to pass much idle time, now that I am disabled and home bound. These games are both fun, challenging, and addictive. I really enjoy and appreciate the way the time seems to fly while I am not only passing the day, but I am also keeping my mind sharp. I also use the free games, because they save me money, and keep me alert when the ads’ appear. I have also noticed that some of the ads’ are for some pretty nifty, sometimes ingenious products. All in all, I am thankful for Brainium games and their sponsors; a really great match! Joseph B.
Love the app however....
by Nchild6 on 2017/09/18 06:23
I am an avid solitaire person, probably one of my favorite games. I absolutely love this app. Love the fact I can personalize the background & the cards too! The undo option is great, align with options of draw 3 or vegas scoring. Sometimes I want it, sometimes I don't. I like the options there. However, as of recently it's been freezing nonstop, everyone other card I touch *game freezes* and I have to exit and restart the app. There are a lot of ads which I understand, however those too freeze the app quite often. Only app I have that freezes. It's frustrating. Especially when, like I said, am a solitaire junkie basically. Might find a new one if it continues to be too bad. Only reason for 3 instead of 5 stars.
Nice single tap interface
by Bill657483 on 2019/03/20 16:22
After one or two hang ups it runs smoothly. I especially like the single tap interface that pretty much does the right thing when you tap a card. The auto-finish button that quietly appears when all of the cards on the table are visible is nice. The animation after you "win" is cute but boring after a few times. HOWEVER—Occasional ads, fine. Ads with loud music, HELL NO! I’m frequently playing this game while waiting in a quiet place with other people. P.S.: the ads got quiet for a few months but in the last few days I’m getting LOUD ADS WITH NO MUTE BUTTON - Shame on you!
Good, but odd feeling solitaire
by JXXFXX on 2020/08/14 09:23
I really like a lot about Brainium’s Solitaire game - great simple, snappy interface, love that I can customize the backs of my cards - but man, despite their claims of using a fancy randomized algorithm/shuffle algorithm, I’ve never played a solitaire game that felt so oddly not random. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started a game and had all face up cards immediately be one suite, or all have 4 cards of a single number plus 3 cards a single other number, one digit away (for example all four 6s face up and three 5s). Really bizarre. I play a lot of normal solitaire using the fancy algorithm of actually shuffling real physical cards and that just does not happen as frequently as in this game. Nonetheless, I still enjoy and play it.
Great game! But confused now...
by caligrl415 on 2020/03/05 15:13
Update: I thank the developers for reaching out. I am not sure how to directly respond to the email so I am adding an update here. I never had 2 apps of your game (solitaire free and the paid version) I have always just had one app that was paid. The day that I reached out the same app I was using that morning it defaulted back to the free version. However, I just updated the app and scrolled to find “restore purchases” and it solved the problem!! Good to go! Thank you! Original review: I have been playing this game for the past two years on my daily commute. Early January I purchased to play without ads. Everything was working great up until moments ago. I opened the app and everything was reverted back to the original settings as if I was downloading it for the first time. The card themes and background was back to default and the ads are popping up even more than they were before I decided to go ad free. Is there something I’m missing? I don’t want to pay again for something I already purchased and it seems odd that everything went back to default settings.
Freeze
by Wassenaar review on 2017/09/19 14:49
It's a good game; user friendly and challenging enough, however it continues to freeze suddenly. In the past when it froze, the game lay-out looked horizontally "squeezed",and one could only uninstall and re-install. I spoke with one of the very pleasant and helpful developers. They apparently were aware of the problem, and were working on it. It seemed to be solved for a while but no, the freezing is back. No more horizontal squeeze, but no response to touching the screen, in mid play, or at the start. Annoying. Only uninstall and re-install. I am looking at another game but Branium has the best lay out and rules.
Most Challenging Solitaire
by Goldylocksca on 2017/10/28 02:41
Other games have not challenged me as much as this game. I do question, however, why there are what I have found to be "unsolvable" games.... and why you offer "hints" which have no positive outcome. The game has me improving my overall strategies. My stats are at about 74%, and I hope to keep improving....Please developers answer what percentage of games are not winnable. Do not like wasting my time if there are non winnable games and you have yet to find a way to filter them out. For me to give this game a higher rating, you would need to ONLY include winnable games....

Newest Review//Update I play this daily so I want the version I’ve been playing for along time, and had won up to and over Level 300. 🗣Sure I want to update the review. I would like to have - want to have (actually) ALL OF my game levels (all over 305 plus a few for inconvenience of having to start OVER AGAIN, after all I don’t get any $$ from it, it’s just the knowing that I have achieved such a high level. Now I am unable to even access the main solitaire screen. Why does this travesty occur?? 🥺 UPDATE : I play solitaire daily, it helps me be calm and focused so it stunned me when after I had completed the Level of 310 the screen went black and after a period of time, when it could be re-booted, ALL LEVELS were gone and (I mean-come on thats a lot of time to achieve that many levels, that’s when I sent my first 1st note. I was hurt and disappointed and I seriously even considered to 🛑playing solitaire all together. Even now on a positive note I am nearing Level 40 - that’s how much I the game. Advise—> If You will Please 🗣Both of these notes have apparently become entwined w/each other. That’s all — it would mean a great deal if you could get it rebooted. Advise-> If You Please🙏Sarge🇺🇸
Love the game!
by rosales.daphne on 2020/01/22 02:10
I really like this app. It’s fun, easy to use, and it lets you pick whichever background and cards you want. Lately though, there’s been a bug or a glitch that keeps making the app close on me every time I open it. I tried deleting the app and downloading it again (which made me lose my records), but the glitch is still there! Now I just hope that I get lucky when opening the app, but I haven’t been able to play in weeks without the app just glitching halfway through my game. I hope they can fix this because I really don’t want to download another version of this game; this one’s been my favorite for a few years now and I don’t want to get rid of it again.
Excellent game; timed ads are annoying
by flyindon on 2016/12/16 23:18
This would get five stars except for the annoying method of advertising. Sure, I understand you gotta' earn some dough either by sale or through advertising revenue, but having an ad remain on the screen for such a long time is annoying and actually is counterproductive -- even if I am interested in the product I will ignore it because I have been force fed the information. The good stuff: The game is great. The graphics are pleasing and the game seems to do a good job of randomizing the cards, making the game fair and entertaining.
Advertisements
by Ladycutlass on 2019/09/26 02:21
Add after add Ugh spent more time closing advertisements than playing, and it hasn’t gotten any better, the adds now freeze the program up and if you have anything open while playing it, it can crash your system. Let me give you an example; I like to listen to an audio book and play cards, as soon as your done with a game the add comes on and crashes my system, so I have to play cards on one device and listen to my audiobook on another. Same with any other program I have running in the background. The only time this program is okay is if I turn off the WiFi or I’m out of range, then it doesn’t crash but it takes forever to start the next game. I’m assuming it’s because it’s looking for a connection for the all important adds.....
A player
by Wordsnphrases on 2017/01/16 23:30
Fun, relaxing. Great way to learn how to play solitaire. You can undo any move, and you can replay any game. When I lose a game, I frequently replay it and often win on the second or third try. In any game of solitaire, even with real cards, on average, only 60% of the games can be won. So I am pleased with my average--47%--that means I am winning almost 5 out of every 6 games that it is possible to win. Also makes me think of life--success depends on how you play your cards, and sometimes, you just can't win, so just move on and don't take it personal.
Frustrating
by Noise pharmer on 2020/07/10 12:39
Played for several weeks and enjoyed the game. I won some here and there and it was a great way to pass the time. All of a sudden, I have been playing for several days without a winnable hand. I even replayed many games several times and there was no solution. Had several games, even a few in a row where there was not one single move possible. Seems like my current losing streak started at the same time I realized you could bypass the ads by touching the upper right hand corner of the screen as soon as they started playing. I don’t mind some of the ads, but I started trying to bypass them when they became political. And not just political, but very hateful and misleading political ads. I tried to report them, but that almost seemed to make them more prevalent.
Cool
by hhhayden07 on 2018/01/18 23:59
Solitaire is the coolest game I have ever played it makes your brain work while on a device but for children I’m might be a little challenging and children might get a little frustrated and that is not good. But all in all solitaire is a god game for ages 12-90 if you live that long. So if your interested in making your brain hurt and make your kids mad at you then go ahead get solitaire, I’m just kidding if you want your kids to think over the summer without a pen or pencil than you should go get solitaire. And that is my review about the wonderful game solitaire.
Mostly great game
by Phcytech on 2017/10/20 23:43
I love solitaire. I play it at work and home. I can go through a game in 1-2 minutes usually. Only complaint is lots of ads. And not just in between games. Sometimes the screen freezes and not even closing the app then signing back in helps. The other day I finished a game and the same starting cards came up. Even when I closed the app and went back in, it was the same exact cards! Finally just quit for the night and it was fixed the next day. But over all, I love this app.
Very low percentage of wins versus losses
by Ohrings on 2016/11/12 18:52
I haven't been playing this game since my Apple IPhone 5 and I've had the iPhone 6 for about 15 months. I have played close to 2000 games and everyone exactly 377, less than 20%. I would very much like to have the ability to adjust the difficulty as other solitary games have. UPDATE!!!! I have let my wife play this game to see if she could do better than I have. We switched phones for a month. Her I five phone with a different game gives her A higher percentage of wins. Or percentage was right around 20% which was the same as mine. I would like to see the option to allow The user to adjust the difficulty.
The slots ads are horrible
by Epost91 on 2018/05/15 22:59
I love the game. Haven’t had problems till now. The slots ads don’t give you an option to close them. They just direct you to the App Store. After that the Solitaire app crashes and when reloaded it just loads up the same game you were on. I’m not able to open a new game because it keeps showing the same glitchy ad every time. I deleted the last Solitaire app I had because of this same problem. I’d like to not have to find another one. Please get rid of these horrible ads. It’s the “Piggy Slots” ad that is causing problems for me.
Good game
by Blueboyprince on 2019/12/04 02:44
The game is pretty good. Its just like the real life version. Great way to waste some time. The only problem is that some games are in-winnable because all the necessary cards are not presented/can not be obtained which is sort of frustrating when you’re like 20 minutes in backtracking and you can’t figure where you went wrong, only to realize it’s not your fault, it’s the game’s random generator that put a card in the wrong place. Hopefully this can get fix. I have screenshots of games where I’m unable to complete if devs are willing to look into the problem. Thanks
Update: upgrading my rating because problem appears to be resolved.
by MakinLemonade on 2019/03/29 13:29
Update: I’m upgrading my rating because the problem I complained about seems to be fixed. It hasn’t happened in many months. Thank you! Original review: The game itself is quite good and I’ve enjoyed it in the past, but I’m significantly downgrading it now due to ads that cause the app to freeze up or crash. And, more importantly, a few ads the ads have started blasting loud music even when you have your phone set on silent.
Unresponsive to certain commands
by JDT43 on 2019/10/09 13:19
Constantly having to ‘undo’ after tapping selection to bring down a new card into play is ignored; instead, I get a new set of three, requiring an ‘undo’ to get back to the card I wish to select. VERY irritating! BTW, I am using a stylus; it does the same thing with all my styluses (sp) so that isn’t the problem. Please fix this highly annoying bug. It really stresses me out, which is exactly opposite the desired effect the game is supposed to have. Otherwise, I love the game! Thanks for many hours of enjoyable (if slightly stressful) entertainment.
Pretty good
by vanessabananas67 on 2020/02/02 23:53
I’m very happy with the game overall, I think it’s a very well made game but the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I feel there should be an option to look at the amount of times you lost. When you play it and you don’t have any possible moves left and you click help it just has you doing pointless things that get irritating fairly quickly. I recommend that when you runout of all possible moves that it tells you so your not wasting your time. Other than not putting loses I feel the game is pretty good.
Great Rendition of Solitaire
by Acid Rock Racer on 2017/10/18 10:33
I find it funny that some reviewers have complained of some games that are difficult to beat. Sorry to break it to ya, but there is a finite number of possible games in solitaire. As such some are not possible to win. Others are exceptionally difficult to win. While some are just hard to win. And so on and so forth. But this game is a very good reproduction of the real world card game. Nice adjustability, with some nice features. Overall, one of the best digital versions I have encountered.
I would have given it 5 stars, but .............
by Regina. Hogan on 2017/11/07 09:06
The cards move so slow when you win! I do like to play. It is relaxing and I can still have a conversation with someone should they wonder by. I had a game once & when you won the cards world break like glass and make a tinkling sound. It was cute. I don’t mind the ads so much except when they won’t let you leave. They make the “ X “ really small in the corner most of the time, but sometimes they just take you to a site or they worm their way in to your private area and I don’t like that at all. Thank You....Hogan Hatcher
Ads
by danedlew on 2019/12/18 06:35
I am no longer going to use Brainium games. You're incessant pop up ads are blocking any fun and enjoyment. I play this game to unwind and relax, but that is no longer possible. As of today, I am deleting the app and will look for another from a different outfit. In response to you email Dec 17th, I am no longer playing that game. I’m tired of all of the game app ads constantly taking me away from what I was trying to enjoy. The vast majority of the games were, in my case, stupid games. They were ads for kids games. You really need to get to know who the people are who play your games. Games that fit certain age groups. You really don’t know who you’re dealing with and that is proven by the games you are constantly throwing up on the screen.
Too many Advertisements AND $13?!?!
by Tweed seller on 2020/01/16 00:19
The game itself works great, but in between each hand you get multiple forced ads. Not only that, but they play ads with sounds very loudly which is a first for me...so I went to purchase the app as I said the program worked well, but they want $12 for this!!!! That’s friggin crazy, aren’t apps a few dollars at most? I just bought a cribbage app and it was $3....total ripoff and I’m deleting and downloading another app right now. Edit: Since writing this I gave them another shot...I have played probably 15 games without a win where before writing the review I would get a win every couple games but I am on almost a 20 game losing streak now...I’m sure it has nothing to do with me leaving a bad review.
One of the better solitaire games
by jamval55 on 2017/03/13 06:38
I like the physical characteristics of this game, especially the fact that you can make the cards big and plain. I like the fact that you can vary the challenge level, as you can in most games and that you don't have to reset that after every game, as you do with some. I would like it better if it showed when there are no more options to play within a game (as some do) and would like to see a "best" for time and number of cards played after each winning hand (as some do).
Fun when you just want to relax
by PoppyFalduto on 2017/08/07 02:33
I like this game for winding down for the day. Sometimes I check percentages (really only when I have lost several games in a row lol). Pros: easy to play, several options for scoring available. Cons: hint is available even when there are no moves left (shows you how to move things from column to column). If there are no moves to win, the option should be greyed out. Also agree with another post about the hint option location, would be better if it was easier to use if visable.

Spending time playing! It’s relaxing, fun and yet a challenge!
Nice little game
by Disneymom57 on 2020/10/28 14:18
This is a game I play to relax myself. There’s no time limit so I can start a game and finish it later on. No stress. I have to use strategy to win.

Some daily challenges seem unwinable
by Native Graffiti on 2020/10/26 13:48
I do like the new daily challenges and the upgrades. However, when I’m given a medium or hard daily challenge, I just wish there was a way I could change that option if I get frustrated and can’t solve after several attempts. I’d really like to have a choice or a reset if I’ve played the same game. To be fair, I’ve done all the challenges but only one has me stumped, a “medium” challenge. Honestly I’ve tried everything! Grrrrr please give me a reset button for those days when it just seems impossible!
Fun free relaxing

This is a really fun quick paced game. Can’t believe it is free with ads that are interesting. Thank you.
Disappointed
by AnnaBean15 on 2020/10/26 02:11
I love Solitaire. I always have. However, this game does not save my achievements. It will tell me I earned them, but never keep them. It’s very strange and frustrating. I love this version of the game. I would love to see this fixed! Thanks!

Automatically copies anything from your paste buffer when you start the game
by OSide-JAM on 2020/10/23 18:28
I liked this app but now with iOS 14 I see that it’s automatically “pasting” whatever I last copied from other apps. There is seriously no legitimate purpose for it to be doing this. Deleting app now.
Excellent

Used to be fun
by Nobody20100531 on 2020/10/23 02:38
But last few times they “improved” it they added many useless features. When you finish a game, you have to click through about 20 clicks and wait a minute while dozens of useless notifications flash by.
Mostly advertisements

Every time an ad with location pops up it goes to driving maps and locks up. Irritating! I have to turn my phone off and on to get out of the frozen screen

Sick of the ads...
by ncgood150 on 2020/10/16 15:30
I understand that “free” games require a certain amount of ads to operate and retain their free status, however this has gotten out of hand. I feel that recently the game has been dealing nothing but impossible hands. 30 seconds of play time and I am stuck with ANOTHER ad. I’m literally watching more ads than I am actually playing the game. Looks like I’ll just end up deleting this app and playing solitaire on my computer without all the annoying ads. There must be some sort of way to compromise? Maybe an ad every 3-4 hands would be acceptable? This is entirely taking the enjoyment out of this app.
This game is not good.
by Cutipuppi on 2020/10/16 13:31
Every time I get a new game it ends up in an unsolvable way. I even tried going back and trying everything. The only one that I was able to complete was the first one. Also there are no choices of easy or hard it just gives you a deck of cards.
Frustrating and expensive
by lbkl2 on 2020/10/16 11:06
I have played a number of games on the Brainum software and cannot win. To make sure it wasn’t just me, I downloaded other solitaire programs and had a more balanced result by winning some and loosing some. This is an expensive game, over $11.00. Obviously the software has a problem.

Nearly impossible
by Oldnweathered on 2020/10/14 12:34
For a game that is relatively simple this one is nearly impossible to win. My win/lose ratio is sitting at 10/76. The shuffling has to be biased to some degree to be this difficult. The layout is ok except for the hints that are pretty much useless.
Still a touch screen play issue but, still great!
by FedUpWithTech! on 2020/10/14 06:40
First of all, this is the Best solitaire game app on the market, bar none! But, my one complaint that gets totally in the way, an actual physical obstacle is how I am using a quick touch to send cards onto other corresponding cards that is a great automatic feature allowing for some seriously fast timed play! But, that is also the issue where I am on an older iPhone to my newest iPhone and both touchscreen play responses frequently causes the card to lift but not send or transfer that card to the other as needed to continue on to the next split-second card to play; I am constantly having to return to the previously unsuccessful card not autoplaying on-demand as needed and frustratingly needing to tap several times to finally get it to pass over to the next card??!! I still give this game a fifth star just for the game’s great graphics and is the beat on the market!
15-second ads that crash IOS 14
by Tmbos on 2020/10/13 01:37

Ever more intrusive ads, poor shuffle
by Jstavros on 2020/10/12 08:11
It seems in the recent version the ads beating us over the head (unless you pay $12) have increased in frequency and hang around longer before you can dispatch them. That, and the poor shuffles have made this one sadly too annoying to play.

by Unbracedhalo on 2020/10/11 01:26
Update: don’t bother. It goes from a fun game to a Joke of a game...simply gets harder and harder before you realize you’re only here to watch ads for other games. Original review: Okay, yes, I have a horrible attention span; this version is a tad easier than almost every other Solitaire game I’ve played (the worst being Google’s on-line version (too hard)). Give it a try...you’ll win more than you lose, and there is a nice hint button when you just want to chill and not lose.

Drains battery
by Beauty4you! on 2020/10/04 14:40
The game was fine, it doesn’t auto end when you are out of moves though. That’s part is annoying. Also, for whoever reason it drained my battery consistently. My IPhone XS Max battery would last all day before I installed this, and when I removed it. But with this installed, I got hours out of my battery. This is something that needs addresses.
A bad experience!
by stephen1588 on 2020/10/03 21:09
Ads spreading Trump nonsense, from god knows what source, degrading our democracy, spreading cynicism, disrespecting science, and showing no regard for the truth... these are offensive to me. I’m going to delete any app that shows them. I did not enjoy the experience.

Everything you want nothing you don't want
by Dkac on 2019/12/27 05:25
Great game. I love that it's like a deck of cards. It's not made so you win or lose. It's just random. you can go back if you make a mistake or even get help. It's your choice. Yes, they have ads to pay the bills and possibly make money. The ads are seldom intrusive, very seldom do they cause a problem. When that happens it's a one-time thing. Overall incredible game. Thank you very much for a game that simulates real cards. I tried several before I found this game. Update: after the recent upgrade at first glance I was disappointed because cards looked out of preoperative. This was because of my bad eyesight, I had the setting in the game options wrong for the new update. One I changed the setting, everything is great. The graphics in the new update are wonderfully sharp and crisp. Unlike lots of games where the update changes the game mechanics. As far as I can tell they left what worked alone, and instead took advantage of the powerful new chips to make the game look and feel even more like a deck of cards. The great thing is that the app does not get in the way of the experience instead just like a true deck of cards it is just a means to an end.
What did you do!
by mocharlie on 2019/12/22 23:26
My app freezes and I get black screen and need to turn it off to continue playing. Your upgrade is horrendous!! Thank your for your response. I still have problems, not as frequently but still there. When I win or cannot and try to start a new game the ad attempts to load and then I get a black screen with a tiny symbol in the lower left corner. At that point I could wait and wait but nothing will change and need to close and shut the app down before I can continue to play. I hope this helps more than my first “rant”. RJ Update #2, I realized this morning that several of my apps are having issues “opening “ and that this started after my last Apple update of 13.3 something. I will also contact and rant at them. This morning absolutely no ads have shown on my Solitaire app?? Thank you for your interest in my issue. Ramona Many apologies and Mea Culpa....it turns out that my last Apple update corrupted as it downloaded and caused all the issues. I worked through Apple support and updated through my PC and now all is working beautifully. Please accept my profound apologies, I love your Solitaire program. Ramona
Best solitaire game I've ever played
by Frankinchobee on 2018/04/24 03:58
I've played a lot of solitaire games over the years. Most of them were decent games and some were just terrible. What really sets this particular game above the rest is it's simplicity of design and how close it gets to a real life experience. No two games are the same and it's really impressive how the developers have been able to design the game in such a way that it feels like I'm playing with a real deck of cards that are being shuffled and dealt in a truly random way. The best compliment I can pay to the developers is to let them know that they've created a game that has been a really great way kill some time and immerse myself in the experience that helps to relieve stress and promote relaxation. Kudos to the developers and publishers. Thanks for creating a great game that I would have been more than happy to pay for but have been able to enjoy it for no money at all. If you enjoy solitaire, I can recommend this game without reservation. Give it a try, I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Really cool!
by foxeyr1227 on 2019/11/07 14:30
I have just brought this game yesterday, and I got to tell you, I was really addicted to it! My three personal favorite about the game is that I can change the theme on the card and in the background. With that I made a beautiful mountain in the background. I also put a picture of my dog on the back of the card! My second personal favorite is that it’s so satisfying to see the cards gently fold back to the card pile when game is over. It’s like seeing $100 of money deposit into your bank account! My third personal favorite is that when I play the game, I just randomly tap everywhere and when I see the cards going crazy after tapping everywhere, I’m like “what the crap?” It’s so funny! (Not a bug) also at the end of the game, I notice that even after I finish the game I will see a whooping 200$ as my score! It’s like getting money in real life! I find that satisfying! Keep up the good work!
Best solitaire
by Trish7491 on 2019/11/19 20:03
This is my favorite of the solitaire games. You can select a background from your photos, the card face design is a crisp mix of traditional and modern, the card back selections are nice. The ads are quick and do not appear on the playing screen, only between games. The control panel is not visible unless you tap it; I like a clean screen. My only complaint is that the shuffles are not random. Perhaps this is to make it possible for the player to win more games. The result is a preponderance of deals that result in, for example, all red cards or mostly red cards, or three of the same card, three aces that turn up early in the game —these patterns and others repeat often. It would be fun to have an “IS THIS GAME WINNABLE” feature, so that when you lose you can then check to see if it’s winnable and try again.
Decent version of Solitaire
by C€J£H& on 2018/12/23 06:06
I recently switch from a Windows 10 phone to an Apple iPhone. I tried to find a version of this game similar to what I had on that phone. Game play on this version of Solitaire is good. Two areas of one improvement would be make the “undo” button immediately available (currently on a pull up menu), and find a different way to display the adds. Not having the undo button on the main screen adds several seconds to the time it takes to successfully solve the hand. On the version I played on my old phone I regularly got below two minutes to solve the hand, but the best I can do with this version is 2 minutes 20 seconds. Being forced to watch a 5 second add after (on average) every other deal is rather off-putting. Perhaps that is the Apple phone App way, but I still might look for a different version of this game on the iPhone because of it. Otherwise, good game.
Use to be a good game
by Tommore2003 on 2018/01/09 16:33
Rarely write a poor review but this apps advertisements between each game have gotten excessive and obnoxious. After most games the commercial ad is loud and long. Sometimes it requires multiple clicks to bypass the ad and get back to the game. Bummer this app has gotten so ad focused as it really has diminished the experience. Update - was trying to include screen shots. Still loud ads running for 5+ seconds. Most have ability to mute but not all can be muted. Unpleasant experience to have noisy ads. Some ads do require multiple clicks, one to mute, second click after five seconds to close screen, then another ad for same game comes up. Three clicks to remove ad. This all changed from previous experience which had almost all silent ads. More pleasant experience.
What....
by Squid Qu33n on 2019/07/24 16:34
I’m very disappointed because I am not able to move anything but a king to an open space. I have been playing this game for three months and I have had to restart the game because it seemed impossible to win. I love the design of this game very much. It’s just that one little thing that annoys me a lot. When I clearly can’t do anything because I can’t move anything but a king to an open space, I ask for a hint. When I have a queen and another queen with a jack, the hint directs me to move the jack to the other queen. And then I tap the hint again because of course, I can’t do ANYTHING because I can’t move anything but a king to an open space. The hint tells me to then move that jack to the queen it was just on.... I’m not sure if it’s not the real rules for you to only move the king to an open space, but that’s not how I play. I think this game is very amazing though. A lot of thought was put into this solitaire game.
Throttled win rate.
by Uglybuster on 2018/01/06 02:48
Two things that are maddeningly wrong about this game. One is if you are on airplane mode so that the adds can’t run the win rate drops to zero. And worse. It doesn’t even let you “feel” like you’re winning. You’re lucky to get four or five flips. The second you turn off airplane mode the win rate shoots up in a ridiculously obvious way. You’ll be able to get tons of flips even if you don’t win every hand. Problem two is the annoying adds. Even with the airline mode off the win rate is lower than it should be and you’ll have to hit “new game” a lot. Then a video starts and shuts off your music so it can run a stupid clip. If you’re renewing your games a lot trying to get even just one win you’ll get 4 or 5 interruptions in the middle of a good song. So frustrating!
Enjoyable, but also annoying
by LLM221 on 2018/01/07 17:48
What other reviewers have said is true -- the cards are not as random as if you were playing with a real deck. The game seems to go in cycles of winning for a stretch and then not being able to win for a (long?) stretch. That said, I'm mostly using it for mindless passing of time, so I just keep going. I don't even mind the ads, as long as I can just X them away. The ads that have timers, lasting 5 seconds or more, or multiple pages are a different matter. And, just recently, ads with sound have been popping up, and, if one isn't paying attention in order to silence them quickly, they are very noisy! I have no desire to draw attention to myself in a public place or on an airplane, or to interrupt someone nearby who is reading, watching tv or on the phone. (I realize I could mute my device, but I shouldn't have to.) If these ads continue, I probably will delete this app.
Random algorithms? Riiight!
by aspanky7 on 2017/05/30 21:08
This is a very addictive and fun game as are almost every other solitaire app out there. The most annoying thing about this version is the supposed "random" algorithm that chooses the cards. These are about as random as a dirty casino slot machine. You will never be able to get above a 20% win rate because of the cards that are "chosen" to start the game. I have played well over a thousand games and at LEAST half of those games started with either ALL red or black cards, all low number cards, or ,the most infuriating of all, every single card in a suit. Entirely too many time this game deals out all 4 cards in a suit and even more often 3 cards from one and 3 cards from another. I've played solitaire since I was a child and NO other computerized solitaire game (NOR when I've played with actual cards shuffled and dealt by myself) has been this maddening and impossible to win. Yes it IS fun but it is also absolute crap and absolutely NOT random!
Solitaire
by Lvpzls on 2020/01/23 06:57
Have played for good while with no ads then recently the game froze. I couldn’t move the cards. I deleted and reinstalled and now I am told I have to pay to get the no ads feature again. I wrote and told them of my problem. Got an email saying they would be in touch. Have heard nothing. Days later: Did get email from Brainium. Was not able to download the no ads version as instructed I could do. Was in the cloud so should have been available. The download showed a circle that never ended circling around. So I decided to reboot my phone and after the reboot I was able to download the no ad version in my cloud. I am so happy to have finally gotten my solitaire back!!!!! Thank you for your help. PS. I have changed my rating.
Racist ads
by Domzyglo on 2019/10/20 02:29
I’ve been playing this game with very issues for a yrs. today I see the most racist ad I’ve ever seen in my existence! This game has an ad after each played game but this one was sick. It was a picture of a black emoji with white stuff around his mouth. The writing on the ad “said i got black! What you got?” I really want to assume that this company was unaware of the ads they allow, but this one was too much. I normally don’t say anything but this is outrageous. Monitor your ads!!! No one should be subjected to racism this blatantly near 2020. Unfortunately, too many still thinks this is funny! The name of the game was Trivia Crack & when you look them up on the App Store, their icon is full of childlike characters like bouncing bananas & apples, etc. OUTRAGEOUS! I’ve already placed this same review on their site as well. One of you have to stop condoning this behavior & conditioning another generation to believe in racist stereotypes...racism period. Let there be a generation of loving one another for once in this human history!
It serves the purpose.
by outspoken igwt on 2019/07/07 01:43
I have played this game for several years. It makes me sleepy, which is what I need just before I go to bed. It’s a simple game. Like most most card games it helps to remember the cards played. I actually prefer shuffling the deck. I am highly suspicious the deck here is contrived by the developer so I get the feeling of not only playing the cards dealt but also playing against the developer. While a shuffled deck can give such displays as all reds or all blacks I get tired getting to the end point and repeatedly have two card remaining, needing say a red nine to complete ty run and a black nine come up. And, all to often it’s a nine being used to foil the run. The are other quirks in this deck arrangement, several. Then there is the scoring. It makes no apparent logic as to the score given for the achievement of a run, and I do not see an explanation how a score is determined.

Hi!! I really love solitaire and I’m so happy I can also play it on my phone when I don’t know where my cards are! My mom won’t play a game with me, my brother doesn’t really know how to play, and my dad is always playing another game. Although, one thing is, sometimes the games seem impossible even with hints. Some even ARE impossible. But I love how you can customize the background and the back of the cards. You could make it so that you can do two player games with one person on one device and the other on another and they compete to see who can win the fastest. Although you might have to add a “this is impossible” button... sorry I made this so long I just have a lot to say and I’m pretty bored 😅😅
One fault
by reallytrulyfree on 2018/06/19 13:16
I love your games. I look for your games. One problem I have found is minute but makes me crazy. The drop up menu when playing solitaire to go back a step or start a new game is on the bottom of my screen which is where all of my frequently used apps are and nearly every time I want your drop up menu I get my frequently used app drop up. It particularly seems to happen when I am close to winning a game I think and I see a card that the game did not pick up and place on the correct spot and I try to go back to get it. Just a pet peeve of mine. Doesn’t mean I will stop playing because you have the best games by far.
Random?
by Rpee47 on 2019/08/23 23:17
UPDATE: The developer sent me a very thoughtful response to my skeptical evaluation and I was able to review the mathematical basis and coding principles for the random generators and shuffling algorithms. As a result of reading through that information, I think I can say that my skepticism does not hold up to scrutiny. I also want to thank the developer for taking the time to provide useful supportive information. To me, that was extremely thoughtful. ORIGINAL: I would love to see Branium’s randomization routine. I think the table is heavily tilted towards putting more ads in front of you. All the mechanics of the game are fine - it’s user friendly enough, the options to customize settings are adequate, and the speed of cards appearing or shuffling off the field of play is fine. The ads take a while to appear, the time to “x” out seems like an eternity, they apparently don’t have a lot of companies buying ad space, so ads are repeated ad naseum, and finally, again, I think the deck is stacked to increase potential for more ads to be thrown at you. I would go into why I don’t think the shuffles are truly random, but I’ve already spent way too many minutes writing about a very small pastime. Don’t settle for one, try a few and find one you will like more than I liked this one.
Best graphics I think
by Jgcool01 on 2017/03/28 19:40
I would like to see the undo button on the screen all the time or have the option to have it there instead of having to pull up the menu. Like most games now it is crammed full of ads which just get in the way and make it unenjoyable. I decided to delete the game from my iPhone because of this. I think these guys have the best graphics and sound though. I think the apps are affordable. With solitaire I would like to option to stack the columns one way or the other. FreeCell gives you an option of switching the top around to where you want things and I like solitaire to do the same. With FreeCell I have a good one ratio, but with the regular solitaire the win ratio is very poor. I don't believe in making difficulty levels, just have it be random and you win what you win. With the redo button how can you lose.
Good game, annoying ads
by Kat634 on 2019/04/08 22:03
Why don’t you thank us by getting rid of the horrible ads? The game itself is fine, but the tacky ads are really, really, really annoying. Unless you enjoy being irritated, you have to turn off wifi, or turn off Solitaire's cellular access, to avoid the ads. The ads are for crap that no one would want. Just to be extra annoying, occasionally an ad runs for quite a while before offering you an option to dismiss it, and in one instance, tapping the barely visible x did nothing whatsoever. The ad, which was for some dumb shoot-at-stuff game, was stuck. Closing and reopening Solitaire did nothing. The only way to get rid of the ad was to reboot the iPad. This is not acceptable. Whatever is spawning these ads needs to be sucked into a black hole.
A Great Solitaire Version
by Mick's Game on 2017/09/19 16:26
Still enjoy this version of Solitaire. But for the past few weeks, the advertisement for Find the Clues game has fatal flaw; when pressing X, the app closes. I have used this app for a couple of years and found it to be a great version of the basic solitaire. I use the app daily just for relaxation. But I also pay attention to the stats being kept (about 40% wins) as well as the achievements which just gives me smiles, like 'Night Owl'. The ads that are shown don't interrupt my game, but appear between games and are easily dismissed. In addition, I also use FreeCell from the same maker which is another good solitaire game.
Too many ads, and freezes too much
by Jhart79 on 2018/02/10 16:37
The game has gotten worse with each update, and there are way too many ads. Game freezes up quite a bit, and it doesn’t respond properly. Also the fact that if you have to undo a move it will automatically add time to your already existing time to cause you to go over is really not a very desirable feature. Almost like the creator of this game does not want a player to even be able to beat already set high scoring time, no matter what you do or how quickly you can get through a set. As soon as I find a suitable replacement game, I will be deleting this one.
Brainium games
by another Proud Vet on 2018/11/04 02:28
I have found the Brainium games to be an excellent way to pass much idle time, now that I am disabled and home bound. These games are both fun, challenging, and addictive. I really enjoy and appreciate the way the time seems to fly while I am not only passing the day, but I am also keeping my mind sharp. I also use the free games, because they save me money, and keep me alert when the ads’ appear. I have also noticed that some of the ads’ are for some pretty nifty, sometimes ingenious products. All in all, I am thankful for Brainium games and their sponsors; a really great match! Joseph B.
Love the app however....
by Nchild6 on 2017/09/18 06:23
I am an avid solitaire person, probably one of my favorite games. I absolutely love this app. Love the fact I can personalize the background & the cards too! The undo option is great, align with options of draw 3 or vegas scoring. Sometimes I want it, sometimes I don't. I like the options there. However, as of recently it's been freezing nonstop, everyone other card I touch *game freezes* and I have to exit and restart the app. There are a lot of ads which I understand, however those too freeze the app quite often. Only app I have that freezes. It's frustrating. Especially when, like I said, am a solitaire junkie basically. Might find a new one if it continues to be too bad. Only reason for 3 instead of 5 stars.
Nice single tap interface
by Bill657483 on 2019/03/20 16:22
After one or two hang ups it runs smoothly. I especially like the single tap interface that pretty much does the right thing when you tap a card. The auto-finish button that quietly appears when all of the cards on the table are visible is nice. The animation after you "win" is cute but boring after a few times. HOWEVER—Occasional ads, fine. Ads with loud music, HELL NO! I’m frequently playing this game while waiting in a quiet place with other people. P.S.: the ads got quiet for a few months but in the last few days I’m getting LOUD ADS WITH NO MUTE BUTTON - Shame on you!
Good, but odd feeling solitaire
by JXXFXX on 2020/08/14 09:23
I really like a lot about Brainium’s Solitaire game - great simple, snappy interface, love that I can customize the backs of my cards - but man, despite their claims of using a fancy randomized algorithm/shuffle algorithm, I’ve never played a solitaire game that felt so oddly not random. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started a game and had all face up cards immediately be one suite, or all have 4 cards of a single number plus 3 cards a single other number, one digit away (for example all four 6s face up and three 5s). Really bizarre. I play a lot of normal solitaire using the fancy algorithm of actually shuffling real physical cards and that just does not happen as frequently as in this game. Nonetheless, I still enjoy and play it.
Great game! But confused now...
by caligrl415 on 2020/03/05 15:13
Update: I thank the developers for reaching out. I am not sure how to directly respond to the email so I am adding an update here. I never had 2 apps of your game (solitaire free and the paid version) I have always just had one app that was paid. The day that I reached out the same app I was using that morning it defaulted back to the free version. However, I just updated the app and scrolled to find “restore purchases” and it solved the problem!! Good to go! Thank you! Original review: I have been playing this game for the past two years on my daily commute. Early January I purchased to play without ads. Everything was working great up until moments ago. I opened the app and everything was reverted back to the original settings as if I was downloading it for the first time. The card themes and background was back to default and the ads are popping up even more than they were before I decided to go ad free. Is there something I’m missing? I don’t want to pay again for something I already purchased and it seems odd that everything went back to default settings.
Freeze
by Wassenaar review on 2017/09/19 14:49
It's a good game; user friendly and challenging enough, however it continues to freeze suddenly. In the past when it froze, the game lay-out looked horizontally "squeezed",and one could only uninstall and re-install. I spoke with one of the very pleasant and helpful developers. They apparently were aware of the problem, and were working on it. It seemed to be solved for a while but no, the freezing is back. No more horizontal squeeze, but no response to touching the screen, in mid play, or at the start. Annoying. Only uninstall and re-install. I am looking at another game but Branium has the best lay out and rules.
Most Challenging Solitaire
by Goldylocksca on 2017/10/28 02:41
Other games have not challenged me as much as this game. I do question, however, why there are what I have found to be "unsolvable" games.... and why you offer "hints" which have no positive outcome. The game has me improving my overall strategies. My stats are at about 74%, and I hope to keep improving....Please developers answer what percentage of games are not winnable. Do not like wasting my time if there are non winnable games and you have yet to find a way to filter them out. For me to give this game a higher rating, you would need to ONLY include winnable games....
Comment to un-warranted changes
by Sgt Mac usmc on 2020/01/14 07:10
Newest Review//Update I play this daily so I want the version I’ve been playing for along time, and had won up to and over Level 300. 🗣Sure I want to update the review. I would like to have - want to have (actually) ALL OF my game levels (all over 305 plus a few for inconvenience of having to start OVER AGAIN, after all I don’t get any $$ from it, it’s just the knowing that I have achieved such a high level. Now I am unable to even access the main solitaire screen. Why does this travesty occur?? 🥺 UPDATE : I play solitaire daily, it helps me be calm and focused so it stunned me when after I had completed the Level of 310 the screen went black and after a period of time, when it could be re-booted, ALL LEVELS were gone and (I mean-come on thats a lot of time to achieve that many levels, that’s when I sent my first 1st note. I was hurt and disappointed and I seriously even considered to 🛑playing solitaire all together. Even now on a positive note I am nearing Level 40 - that’s how much I the game. Advise—> If You will Please 🗣Both of these notes have apparently become entwined w/each other. That’s all — it would mean a great deal if you could get it rebooted. Advise-> If You Please🙏Sarge🇺🇸
Love the game!
by rosales.daphne on 2020/01/22 02:10
I really like this app. It’s fun, easy to use, and it lets you pick whichever background and cards you want. Lately though, there’s been a bug or a glitch that keeps making the app close on me every time I open it. I tried deleting the app and downloading it again (which made me lose my records), but the glitch is still there! Now I just hope that I get lucky when opening the app, but I haven’t been able to play in weeks without the app just glitching halfway through my game. I hope they can fix this because I really don’t want to download another version of this game; this one’s been my favorite for a few years now and I don’t want to get rid of it again.
Excellent game; timed ads are annoying
by flyindon on 2016/12/16 23:18
This would get five stars except for the annoying method of advertising. Sure, I understand you gotta' earn some dough either by sale or through advertising revenue, but having an ad remain on the screen for such a long time is annoying and actually is counterproductive -- even if I am interested in the product I will ignore it because I have been force fed the information. The good stuff: The game is great. The graphics are pleasing and the game seems to do a good job of randomizing the cards, making the game fair and entertaining.
Advertisements
by Ladycutlass on 2019/09/26 02:21
Add after add Ugh spent more time closing advertisements than playing, and it hasn’t gotten any better, the adds now freeze the program up and if you have anything open while playing it, it can crash your system. Let me give you an example; I like to listen to an audio book and play cards, as soon as your done with a game the add comes on and crashes my system, so I have to play cards on one device and listen to my audiobook on another. Same with any other program I have running in the background. The only time this program is okay is if I turn off the WiFi or I’m out of range, then it doesn’t crash but it takes forever to start the next game. I’m assuming it’s because it’s looking for a connection for the all important adds.....
A player
by Wordsnphrases on 2017/01/16 23:30
Fun, relaxing. Great way to learn how to play solitaire. You can undo any move, and you can replay any game. When I lose a game, I frequently replay it and often win on the second or third try. In any game of solitaire, even with real cards, on average, only 60% of the games can be won. So I am pleased with my average--47%--that means I am winning almost 5 out of every 6 games that it is possible to win. Also makes me think of life--success depends on how you play your cards, and sometimes, you just can't win, so just move on and don't take it personal.
Frustrating
by Noise pharmer on 2020/07/10 12:39
Played for several weeks and enjoyed the game. I won some here and there and it was a great way to pass the time. All of a sudden, I have been playing for several days without a winnable hand. I even replayed many games several times and there was no solution. Had several games, even a few in a row where there was not one single move possible. Seems like my current losing streak started at the same time I realized you could bypass the ads by touching the upper right hand corner of the screen as soon as they started playing. I don’t mind some of the ads, but I started trying to bypass them when they became political. And not just political, but very hateful and misleading political ads. I tried to report them, but that almost seemed to make them more prevalent.
Cool
by hhhayden07 on 2018/01/18 23:59
Solitaire is the coolest game I have ever played it makes your brain work while on a device but for children I’m might be a little challenging and children might get a little frustrated and that is not good. But all in all solitaire is a god game for ages 12-90 if you live that long. So if your interested in making your brain hurt and make your kids mad at you then go ahead get solitaire, I’m just kidding if you want your kids to think over the summer without a pen or pencil than you should go get solitaire. And that is my review about the wonderful game solitaire.
Mostly great game
by Phcytech on 2017/10/20 23:43
I love solitaire. I play it at work and home. I can go through a game in 1-2 minutes usually. Only complaint is lots of ads. And not just in between games. Sometimes the screen freezes and not even closing the app then signing back in helps. The other day I finished a game and the same starting cards came up. Even when I closed the app and went back in, it was the same exact cards! Finally just quit for the night and it was fixed the next day. But over all, I love this app.
Very low percentage of wins versus losses
by Ohrings on 2016/11/12 18:52
I haven't been playing this game since my Apple IPhone 5 and I've had the iPhone 6 for about 15 months. I have played close to 2000 games and everyone exactly 377, less than 20%. I would very much like to have the ability to adjust the difficulty as other solitary games have. UPDATE!!!! I have let my wife play this game to see if she could do better than I have. We switched phones for a month. Her I five phone with a different game gives her A higher percentage of wins. Or percentage was right around 20% which was the same as mine. I would like to see the option to allow The user to adjust the difficulty.
The slots ads are horrible
by Epost91 on 2018/05/15 22:59
I love the game. Haven’t had problems till now. The slots ads don’t give you an option to close them. They just direct you to the App Store. After that the Solitaire app crashes and when reloaded it just loads up the same game you were on. I’m not able to open a new game because it keeps showing the same glitchy ad every time. I deleted the last Solitaire app I had because of this same problem. I’d like to not have to find another one. Please get rid of these horrible ads. It’s the “Piggy Slots” ad that is causing problems for me.
Good game
by Blueboyprince on 2019/12/04 02:44
The game is pretty good. Its just like the real life version. Great way to waste some time. The only problem is that some games are in-winnable because all the necessary cards are not presented/can not be obtained which is sort of frustrating when you’re like 20 minutes in backtracking and you can’t figure where you went wrong, only to realize it’s not your fault, it’s the game’s random generator that put a card in the wrong place. Hopefully this can get fix. I have screenshots of games where I’m unable to complete if devs are willing to look into the problem. Thanks
Update: upgrading my rating because problem appears to be resolved.
by MakinLemonade on 2019/03/29 13:29
Update: I’m upgrading my rating because the problem I complained about seems to be fixed. It hasn’t happened in many months. Thank you! Original review: The game itself is quite good and I’ve enjoyed it in the past, but I’m significantly downgrading it now due to ads that cause the app to freeze up or crash. And, more importantly, a few ads the ads have started blasting loud music even when you have your phone set on silent.
Unresponsive to certain commands
by JDT43 on 2019/10/09 13:19
Constantly having to ‘undo’ after tapping selection to bring down a new card into play is ignored; instead, I get a new set of three, requiring an ‘undo’ to get back to the card I wish to select. VERY irritating! BTW, I am using a stylus; it does the same thing with all my styluses (sp) so that isn’t the problem. Please fix this highly annoying bug. It really stresses me out, which is exactly opposite the desired effect the game is supposed to have. Otherwise, I love the game! Thanks for many hours of enjoyable (if slightly stressful) entertainment.
Pretty good
by vanessabananas67 on 2020/02/02 23:53
I’m very happy with the game overall, I think it’s a very well made game but the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because I feel there should be an option to look at the amount of times you lost. When you play it and you don’t have any possible moves left and you click help it just has you doing pointless things that get irritating fairly quickly. I recommend that when you runout of all possible moves that it tells you so your not wasting your time. Other than not putting loses I feel the game is pretty good.
Great Rendition of Solitaire
by Acid Rock Racer on 2017/10/18 10:33
I find it funny that some reviewers have complained of some games that are difficult to beat. Sorry to break it to ya, but there is a finite number of possible games in solitaire. As such some are not possible to win. Others are exceptionally difficult to win. While some are just hard to win. And so on and so forth. But this game is a very good reproduction of the real world card game. Nice adjustability, with some nice features. Overall, one of the best digital versions I have encountered.
I would have given it 5 stars, but .............
by Regina. Hogan on 2017/11/07 09:06
The cards move so slow when you win! I do like to play. It is relaxing and I can still have a conversation with someone should they wonder by. I had a game once & when you won the cards world break like glass and make a tinkling sound. It was cute. I don’t mind the ads so much except when they won’t let you leave. They make the “ X “ really small in the corner most of the time, but sometimes they just take you to a site or they worm their way in to your private area and I don’t like that at all. Thank You....Hogan Hatcher
Ads
by danedlew on 2019/12/18 06:35
I am no longer going to use Brainium games. You're incessant pop up ads are blocking any fun and enjoyment. I play this game to unwind and relax, but that is no longer possible. As of today, I am deleting the app and will look for another from a different outfit. In response to you email Dec 17th, I am no longer playing that game. I’m tired of all of the game app ads constantly taking me away from what I was trying to enjoy. The vast majority of the games were, in my case, stupid games. They were ads for kids games. You really need to get to know who the people are who play your games. Games that fit certain age groups. You really don’t know who you’re dealing with and that is proven by the games you are constantly throwing up on the screen.
Too many Advertisements AND $13?!?!
by Tweed seller on 2020/01/16 00:19
The game itself works great, but in between each hand you get multiple forced ads. Not only that, but they play ads with sounds very loudly which is a first for me...so I went to purchase the app as I said the program worked well, but they want $12 for this!!!! That’s friggin crazy, aren’t apps a few dollars at most? I just bought a cribbage app and it was $3....total ripoff and I’m deleting and downloading another app right now. Edit: Since writing this I gave them another shot...I have played probably 15 games without a win where before writing the review I would get a win every couple games but I am on almost a 20 game losing streak now...I’m sure it has nothing to do with me leaving a bad review.
One of the better solitaire games

I like the physical characteristics of this game, especially the fact that you can make the cards big and plain. I like the fact that you can vary the challenge level, as you can in most games and that you don't have to reset that after every game, as you do with some. I would like it better if it showed when there are no more options to play within a game (as some do) and would like to see a "best" for time and number of cards played after each winning hand (as some do).
Fun when you just want to relax

I like this game for winding down for the day. Sometimes I check percentages (really only when I have lost several games in a row lol). Pros: easy to play, several options for scoring available. Cons: hint is available even when there are no moves left (shows you how to move things from column to column). If there are no moves to win, the option should be greyed out. Also agree with another post about the hint option location, would be better if it was easier to use if visable.
